Smoking Notes:

Before lighting up

The wrapper exhales some sweet aromas of honey and milk coffee. There are also notes of pepper and stone fruit.

Burn/ Draw

Once the cap clipped, the draw is great, just a bit on the tight side, hopefully it opens up slightly in the first third. The pre-light draw reveals aromas of tobacco, hints of coffee and some sweet spice note. Upon lighting the cigar, mild flavors are reaching the palate, some grass, more sweetness, like honey, and some wood. The burn is sharp, and does not require any attention throughout the smoke. The ash holds on for about one and half inch and the smoke has a very sweet aspect as well.

Initial third:

The first third of the cigar is starting very mild in body, slowly reaching medium body. The dominant flavors are of mild tobacco, milk coffee, and lots of sweet notes, fruits, earth. There are also some notes of pepper, cinnamon, burnt wood and some hay and barnyard. The smoke is plentiful and very creamy and sweet.

Middle third:

In the middle third, the flavor profile is similar to the one developed in the first third, there is now more wood, grass/hay, tobacco and also a darker coffee note, while the sweetness wanes. The spice and the pepper creeps up just a bit, but not overwhelming. The flavors are still mild, while the body of the cigar is now in the medium range. The amount of smoke released by each draw is now even more abundant and thicker. Overall, the cigar and the smoke are very creamy.

Final third:

In the final third, the intensity of the cigar increases a bit more, now sitting well into the medium body range. The dominant flavors in the final third are of leather, black pepper, tobacco. There are also notes of smoke, tar and also some nuts, like marzipan. The flavors are never overpowering, and it is delicious until the end.

In summary, it is a perfect morning smoke or afternoon smoke for a beginner. Mild and light, with a nice Cuban flavor profile.

Smoking time:

60 – 80 Minutes

Excellent Cigar , 12/6/2017
By Robert
Bought one of these on a recent trip to Canada and loved it, so I quickly ordered a box from Cigar Terminal. Wow! What a great smoke! Rich and creamy definitely describes this cigar, with hints of sweetness throughout. Plenty of flavor and not harsh.

I did have some problems getting a good draw from the one I bought in Canada, but not from the box I ordered from Cigar Terminal. For this price, I'm willing to use a small skewer to unclog the stogies if necessary, but haven't had to so far.

These smoked good right out of the shipping box--same day in fact. I've only smoked a couple so far...trying to let them sit in my humidor for a while.

These are so good that the only thing keeping me from ordering another box right now is me wanting to keep trying different, less mainstream Cuban brands. Always in search of value and the next great cigar find!

For the money, I just don't think you can beat this Fonseca.
